Potato Caserole

I've really been into one dish meals.
Here is one that I really like!

1 pkg(8oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup chicken broth
3 lbs red potatoes thinly sliced (I just had baking potatoes and they worked fine)
1 pkg (6 oz) diced ham (smoked is yummy)
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup frozen peas (I hate peas but didn't mind them in this dish)

Preheat oven to 350
spray 13x9 baking dish
mix cream cheese, sour cream and chicken broth until well blended
add potatoes, ham, and peas and 1 3/4 cups cheese
stir gently to coat all ingredients
spoon into prepared baking dish
sprinkle with remaining cheese
bake for one hour or until potatoes are tender
